Ivo Verheyen, GAC group vice president – Europe, said the acquisition of Ahlers Belgium will help to expand the group’s services in and around the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA) region.
“For the last three years, GAC Belgium has specialised in agency and dry bulk services at all of the country’s ports. With our new colleagues, we are determined to continue to deliver the highest levels of service and local knowledge that our clients can rely on,” Verheyen said.
Roel Vanmaele, managing director of Ahlers Belgium, added: “This transfer is part of a drive to sharpen Ahlers’ focus on supply chain management and logistics. Our two companies have worked successfully and productively together for a number of years and will continue to do so in areas of joint interest.”
